As we prepare to be empty nesters we are celebrating too the flight our youngest baby bird to fly on his own. Last night we had a dinner in his honor to encourage him in his endeavor. His brother and sister and their spouses, his cousin Derek and wife Beth along with Bella, Dylan, Dwight and I enjoyed a BBQ dinner on our back patio. It was a great nite of filet mignon, cheesy potatoes, green beans, rolls and a yummy fruit salad. We topped it off with a Mud Pie I made with oreo cookie crust and mocha java icecream and chocolate syrup. It was a hit! My husband gave each of the couples the book Living the Extraordinary Life by Charles Stanley. This book touched his heart and he is sharing it with friends and family. He started a bible study at work with the guys in management also. We also talked about going the Harvest Crusade together. It was a blessed night. I was a tired but happy mama bird! A special thank you to Sandy at 4 Reluctant Entertainers for her encouragement to entertain and enjoy the time with family and friends often. Although I forgot to take pictures of he food or the table to share with you. It was a beach theme with flowers from my garden in little jars for decor. I am looking forward to the next event already.
